Multiple Teams · JH Lady Tigers Take Rivalry Game


Minco and Union City had their annual face off, when the Tigers traveled to the Bulldog’s gym. For the last few years, Union City had fallen short of winning this game, but that was all changing today. The girls lined up for the tip off, which the Lady Tigers got. The first quarter started out well for the Lady Tigers, with a score of 13-6. With the second quarter starting so did the Bulldog’s full court press. The Tigers had just the play in mind to break it, they ran it a few times and broke the press. Taytim Woods scored 5 points in the second, which was almost half of her end game total.

The Tigers also pressed most of the game, which resulted in many fast breaks and easy bumps around the basket. The half time score was 18-10, with the Lady Tigers still in the lead. The Lady Tigers came out and busted a three pointer to start off the third. Anyssa Morales, Laila Goad, and Kailee Jackson also scored a combined total of 8 points. While Minco still trailed behind with only 5 in the third quarter. The last quarter went fast, but the points went up slowly. Both teams’ defense was good, but their offense was lacking. The Tigers only scored 3 points, while the Bulldogs scored 6. The final score was 32-22.

During the 7/8th grade game, Bailee Jackson got injured and we wish her a fast recovery and to catch your local Tigers back in action come to the Tiger Arena on November 27th starting at 4:30. We hope to see you there.

Multiple Teams · Bobcats Bully Tigers


Hydro hosted the Union City Tigers where they would play three games that night. The 7&8th grade boys started out, while the freshmen boys and the JH girls cheered them on! Union City knew this would be a challenging game to win, but they were up for a challenge. Coming into the first quarter Union couldn’t penetrate the Bobcat’s defense, the Bobcats could barely get through the Tiger’s as well. The Tigers didn’t score the first quarter, but Hydro put up 6 points.

After both teams got a quick break between quarters, they threw themselves back into the game. Union City came and scored a couple layups, but still didn’t close the gap in scores. The Bobcats didn’t like the Tiger’s hopefulness, and bumped up their score with three layups and a three pointer. The Tiger’s weren’t giving up yet, especially after Coach Anderson’s halftime talk. He said that no matter what the score is, you should never give up. At halftime the score was 15-4, but the Tigers weren’t stopping.

The Hydro girls came out and busted a three to start it off, but the Tigers got 3 easy bumps. Hydro scored multiple layups and 2 free throws. The fourth quarter was when Coach Anderson subbed in the young girls, this would be good playing experience for them, as he later stated. The girls came into a rough start, but got the hang of it later in the last quarter. Morgan Carel, 7th grader, scored Union City’s last points for the game. With the final score of 42-12, the Tigers left knowing what they needed to work on the next day.

Come see your local Tigers in action November 16th at Minco, the girls start at 6:30pm and the boys will follow shortly after.

Multiple Teams · Two Points; Three Seconds


The crowds watched anxiously as both Lookeba and Union City lined up for the final tip off of the Calumet Tournament, which team would win? Both teams were fairly good, but which was better? Intensity levels ran higher and higher as the game went on, and when it cam down to the final three seconds of the game, who would come out on top?

Coach Anderson told his team, before they left, that the team who came out with the most energy and the most aggression would win Saturday games like these. It fired his team up and made them want that trophy even more. The first quarter was rough for the Lady Tigers, they fell way behind and only scored 2 points. Lookeba came out and weaved right through the Tiger’s defense and scored 11 points. Now angered, Union City came back before the half, making great plays, and almost caught up. Making the other team a little bit more nervous because they had underestimated the Tigers for the last time. The score at the end of the half was 13 to 8.

The Tigers came right back out and Taytim Woods busted a three pointer and the team backed her up with both Freshmen Emily Loughridge and Anyssa Morales making 2 points apiece. The Tigers almost held Lookeba at 13 points but they got an extra basket, and the third quarter ended with a tie of 15 to 15. With energy coursing through their veins, the Tigers headed into the last quarter where they finally got ahead for the first time that game.

Anyssa Morales had made a quick shot at the basket and had gotten fouled. She bumped the Tigers up to 18-15. After a few more plays the score was tied at 20-20 with 47 seconds left on the clock. Could the Tigers take this trophy home? The Tigers got into some foul trouble and let the Panthers back in. With 3 seconds left on the clock and the score at 24-20, the Tigers needed a miracle play to score. Coach Anderson called a time out and provided just that, he drew up the play and sent his players back out there. The clock started, the ball was thrown in, and Anyssa Morales received the pass and scored a little bump. With a single second left on the clock the score was now 24-22. Lookeba made a long pass that ran the clock down just enough for them to win. The Tigers had fought back and almost won.

Congratulations to Lookeba for winning the Consolation trophy!
